Brave New World (rules from the society)

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Freaky Fender, Sep 6, 2005.


  1. I have to write a paper for school, and I need to clear up some of the rules.

    For what I have so far, there are


    All recreation games must be played with an elaborate apperatisus

    All art must be used for consumption, and must be able to be removed for newer art.

    Contriceptives must be used at all times

    Promiscuity must be obeyed...


    I can't remember any others. Can someone help me out?

    Harry, it is a great book, you will love it.

    Just read it.
     
  8. Actually, I did.

    I do love it. unfortunitly I slacked off enough that I had to use sparknotes, but I decided I should still read it.

    While both 1984 and BNW are horrific, i far prefer the cuddly BNW vision of the future, over the "boot stamping on a human face, forever."

    At least in BNW, there's a way out for the free-thinkers.

    i've read an analysis contrasting '84 with bnw.

    bnw: a possibility for the development of america
    '84: a possibility for the development of the soviet union


    so i think your answer is pretty appropos! :D

    Or China. '84, that is. The censorship, laws prohibiting making babies, use of violence to perpetuate the state, suppression of religion....

    Creepy.
